The guy who robbed a TCF Bank branch inside an Uptown Jewel-Osco on Friday struck again today.

This time, he held up a TCF Bank branch inside a Lakeview Jewel-Osco.

After walking into the store at 2940 North Ashland at high noon, the man passed a robbery note to the bank teller and fled with an undetermined amount of cash and a GPS tracking device.

Cops soon found the tracker dumped outside of the store entrance, police said.

New images from today’s robbery are shown here along with two from Friday’s hold-up.

The FBI describes the offender as a white man with blonde facial hair who’s between 25- and 35-years-old. He stands about 6-feet tall and weighs 180 to 200 pounds.

A reward is being offered for info that leads to the man’s arrest. The FBI Chicago tip line may be reached at 312-421-6700.
